I normally archive my edited images from Lightroom unto an external hard drive, but first, I convert them to DNG. DNG stores the edits in the files themselves, so I can simply drag the dng files to the hard drive and viola, everything is stored. If I want to re-edit, I just import them back into Lightroom and lightroom edits are stored. The benefit of dng being 20% smaller was well welcomed as well.
Now, I am shooting my 5D2 in sraw, but when I convert to DNG, the file size almost double.
Does anyone have any other way I can archive my images where the edits are stored IN the file, similar to dng, but still be at least the same file size as the original sRAW?
